The Registered Nurses Foundation of BC pays special tribute to Helen Louise Shore and is grateful for the support we have received in honour of her memory.
Helen made many meaningful connections and contributions during her distinguished life in nursing. She worked in Community Health Nursing and then dedicated her career to Nursing Education.
Helen L. Shore also completed a book at age 95 entitled “Shore to Shore: A record of the Shore family of Sheffield, England, to London, Ontario” describing some of her family stories dating back to the 15th Century – including one very famous family member, Florence Nightingale.
Helen earned many honours for her numerous contributions and achievements. She was also an active community volunteer supporting nursing and community service organizations. Helen touched many nurses and countless others through her lifetime. She is missed by many who share deep admiration for Helen’s contributions.
